ABSTRACTThe objective of the present study was to compare the complications presented in postoperative patients of hip replacement arthroplasty vs. revision arthroplasty as periprosthetic infection management. Material and methods: A retrospective and comparative cross-sectional study included patients with septic loosening of the hip with revision or interposition arthroplasty during the period from 2013 to 2015 with a three-month follow-up, grouping complications into major and minor systemic and major and minor locals. Results: The demographic homogeneity of the population was adequate. There were no statistically significant differences in the complications compared between the two groups.
